A recent Law360 article shares findings from a Brattle-authored report exploring the economics of Universal Service Fund (USF) reform for INCOMPAS. The article, “Fix FCC Subsidies’ ‘Distortionary’ Base, Network Group Says,” highlights the report finding that adding broadband providers to the mix of revenues included in the contribution base – the source of fees funding USF, which covers a wide range of Federal Communications Commission (FCC) access and affordability programs – is the most economically efficient option for USF reform.

The Brattle report, “The Economics of Universal Service Fund Reform,” was authored by Principals Dr. Coleman Bazelon and Dr. Paroma Sanyal and Senior Associate Dr. Yong Paek.
